Nat Geo Brain Games / Nerd Nite @ Hotel Solamar - SD Comic Con 2019
Eric Leonardis recently joined National Geographic and Nerd Nite San Diego during San Diego Comic Con to talk about brain-computer interfaces: applications and ethical conundrums! With all of the new innovation in neurotechnology, what about issues of ethics and privacy? Is Elon Musk's new Neuralink the next mass surveillance technology? Using Cowboy Bebop as his compass, Eric broke down how to resist the violation of privacy in this new brain-centered era.
The hotel rooftop had a capacity of 400 attendees, 2800 people RSVPd for the event. In true comic con style, there were thousands of people waiting around many city blocks to attend! There was even an open bar!
